I have a Takahashi FSQ106 scope and would like to add a Tak Reducer QE 0.73X to the train. The reducer has 77mm male threads on the OTA side and 55mm male threads on the camera side. My problem is how to mate the reducer to an adapter that on the camera side receives my 2" nosepiece (connected to filter wheel and featuring thumb screws). Currently my adapter screws directly into the OTA. I bought a complete set of step up and step down rings hoping one of them would solve the problem but the threads are wrong (male/female wise).
Plenty of folks use the reducer so I know there's a solution. Adapters that receive a 2" nosepiece with thumbscrews don't seem to come with much variety of thread sizes on the other end. Thanks for any ideas.
